NOMURA Singapore has joined other multinational corporations at Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC), Raffles Quay Asset Management (RQAM) announced yesterday.
Nomura has signed up 102,000 square feet of space in MBFC’s Tower Two, and will occupy levels 34 to 37 of the 50-storey commercial tower.
The leading financial securities company in Japan, Nomura has signed a 12-year lease and will take occupancy of the space in 2011.
The latest tenant brings the total pre-commitment of MBFC Tower Two to about 66 per cent, with overall pre-leasing figures for MBFC Towers One and Two at approximately 79 per cent.
Said RQAM chief executive Wilson Kwong: ‘With the recent levels of growth seen in the economy, more multinational corporations will be on the lookout for quality commercial space in Singapore’s Central Business District, and MBFC will play an integral part in attracting these firms.
‘MBFC is also in discussions with other companies and continues to receive strong leasing interests for commercial space in Towers Two and Three. We believe that its tenants will enjoy both state-of-the-art office space as well as the unique ‘work.live.play’ environment provided by the development.’
When fully completed in 2012, MBFC will be Singapore’s first mixed-use development that successfully integrates residential, business, retail and entertainment facilities.
